More people having difficulties paying bills

The number of people having difficulties paying their energy costs has boosted in recent weeks.

That’s one of the findings of the most recent survey by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) which implies about 43 percent adults find it “very” or “somewhat difficult” to pay for them.

That compares to 37 percent of people who gave the same exact answer in the previous period, just a couple of weeks ago.

The most recent poll, which covers the period from 22nd June to 3rd July, also discovered that 6 percent of customers reported they were behind on electricity or gas bills.

It had been already estimated that energy costs could reach more than £3.3k this winter.

Asked about what energy saving actions people had taken in the past year, 63 percent of the respondents stated that they had turned down their central heating temperature and nearly half had lowered their heating in a specific room when not using it.
